It feels like this summer has been the fastest yet and we can’t believe it’s already come to an end. And with kiddos back in school it does always make us want to update + get things organized! This year we wanted to completely makeover our boys shared space to make it feel more like a “cool” big boy room to fit their growing needs and interests. So we partnered with Pottery Barn Kids to help us with our Star Wars room makeover! A cool + modern room with a touch of a Star Wars/Space Theme. We wanted this room to have a more futuristic style and decided to keep the color palette mainly black + white with a few shades of gray + pops of color. It was important for us to find a balance between stylish but also fun, functional + inspiring for our little peanuts.
Before: Modern Safari
We knew for this shared space that we wanted to do a bunk bed option to not only allow for more room to play but also because bunk beds are just so fun! Our boys had been begging for a bunk bed for a while and when we came across the Camden Low Bunk Bed we knew it would be the perfect fit! I love the simple modern look of it and also that it’s a little lower then a regular bunk bed allowing for more room on the top bunk.
After: Star Wars + Space
The wall with the dresser on it is a pretty long wall so we knew we wanted to fill up that space with a great wall gallery. We also partnered with Minted who now offers an incredible selection of stylish wall art that comes with amazing framing options! We just love how the different modern pieces + Star Wars art came together to create a perfect gallery wall for any space enthusiast!
A great way to make a room feel fresh + new and give it a good facelift is simply by re-painting the room. Before this room was a light blue and we knew we wanted to drastically change that. We decided to use our all time favorite white paint: Extra White by Sherwin-Williams and to make the play nook stand out and feel extra cool we decided to go with a contrasting black paint. Can we just say how obsessed we are with black walls right now?! If you are looking for a tried + true black paint we suggest Tricorn Black by Sherwin-Williams.
